A 39-year-old female asked:

No: This is offered by a group of independent medical thinkers who have not characterized the test or the antigen as is usually done for such tests. I've followed them for two decades and they are an anomaly -- clearly sincere, but not 21st-century medicine. I'd caution you against basing any important decision on the results.

AMAS: AMAS ( Anti Malignan Antibody in Serum) is still being evaluated as a cancer marker. This test is not accepted by most cancer specialists because of a lack of evidence that it is reliable.
